Networked BI: data flows in both directions.

Networked BI virtualizes the entire analytics and data ecosystem, enabling the transformation of an organization’s approach to analytics. Built on top of Birst’s modern, multi-tenant cloud architecture, Birst creates a set of interwoven analytics and BI instances that share a common data-as-a-service fabric. This enables organizations to expand the use of BI across multiple regions, product lines, departments and customers in a more agile way, and empowers these decentralized teams to augment their enterprise data with their own local data.

Networked BI is different, allowing both top-down and bottom-up blending of data. The result is local execution with global governance, eliminating data silos once and for all and dramatically accelerating the delivery of BI across the enterprise.

Top Down:
from IT to end users

Enable a central team to expand the use of analytics and BI across the enterprise by creating virtual instances that unify global, local data and metadata.

Decentralized BI

  • Rapidly refine enterprise data
  • Create trusted, governed user data
  • Create corporate wide metrics
  • Create top-down Virtual BI instances

Decentralized BI

  • Subscribe to Virtual BI instance
  • Rapidly mash-up with departmental data
  • Share with end-user

End-user Discovery

  • Blend corporate and local data
  • Transparently work in “personal BI sandbox”
  • Support individual agility, transparently governed: working with trusted corporate and departmental data

Bottom Up:
from end users to IT

Empower individual end users to access and blend their data with IT-owned data. The blended data can be promoted up to become part of a global business model which maintains governance and ensures people are working with a trusted, consistent source of information.

Corporate BI

  • Can create new virtual “top down” instances
  • Can treat as departmental and/or corporate governed

Decentralized BI

  • Further blend with additional data
  • Governance maintained transparently
  • Promote to central corporate instance

End-user Discovery

  • Independent virtual instance
  • Data blend with individual data: auto dimensional model
  • Share with department instance
